Review last reviewed on 19-Feb-2011

One of Queenstown's higher-end restaurants, the Botswana Butchery is situated right on the lake-front in Queenstown, offering beautiful views and a nice breeze in summer if you're outside. Despite looking like a small colonial cottage, the interior is actually decorated in a plush contemporary style, with meat cleavers as door handles in keeping with its logo - and also represented in various dishes - this is a fine dining restaurant so you should expect similar service and prices, though you can just go for cocktails.

There are two bars - the one upstairs is for the use of customers dining up there, including in its miniature private dining rooms, however the large bar downstairs seats eight and is available for diners before they eat or just for drinkers. Cocktails are well mixed and served in expensive, elegant glassware, with each drink presented on the menu with a bit of cocktail heritage. There's also a whopping 1000-strong wine list.
